Investment in gynaecology facilities at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital have opened two state-of-the-art units designed by architects at Studio. They combine the hospital’s gynaecology inpatient services in one dedicated location.
The brand new Annie Zunz gynaecology ward and the adjoining Elizabeth Suite housing the Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit (EPAU) and emergency gynaecology services are located on the 4th Floor of the hospital.
James Beckett (Divisional Director of Operations) said: “We are absolutely delighted that a long-held plan to develop a dedicated gynaecology unit has come to fruition to improve the patient experience. The team have worked so hard to make this a reality and we are very excited with this new space for our patients.”
Michele Carr (Clinical Nurse Specialist) said: “We are thrilled that the Elizabeth Suite has opened today, providing a brand new early pregnancy and acute gynaecology department within the hospital. Having a new specialist gynaecology ward in a dedicated space designed for the unique needs of gynaecology patients will further improve the experience for women requiring inpatient care.”
This investment will help the gynaecology team provide a holistic emergency care service suited to the needs of their patients and will support A&E and GP colleagues as those experiencing emergency gynaecology symptoms can be redirected to the specialist service.
